nice overall but

Review Date Jun 2021

I think the appearance of the building is fabulous.

The room, again the appearance is nice. But in terms of user experience, it’s not good enough.
To give one example, I can hear heavy bass sound through the wall, so sound wise it’s not that good. If it stays same, I will need to talk about it to property management company and hope to be solved..

There are gyms, pool, cinemas for residents. I haven’t experienced the facilities yet, but should be nice.

I also like the exclusive events for residents. There are many kinds. hoping to have more in coming days.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The area has great atmosphere with nice restaurants and shops.
In terms of supermarket, so far it’s nice, but if there are more new apartment buildings in the area, I think Tesco and Coop are too small to cover, might need new one.

Highly dependent on Jubilee Line when going to the centre, still it has nice access.

I really like the area here. Open, calm, and also active, the riverside provides such a nice vibe. I also like the open space in front of the station, it’s not packed with people in small space like the other stations in London. Great design by development.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I had to welcome repair people into my room 7 times in about 1 month. It’s exhausting to deal with it. So check all hobs are working right, heating also, it was not working for mine. It doesn’t seem to take time to repair, but sadly it does.

How has the building management responded to any problems or issues you have raised:

Property management, they have good response. It’s just there are many problems needed to repair with the room etc and that’s frustrating. The situation where I have to exchange emails and calls with property management frequently is not good.

Living in Upperside – A great experience turned into a home

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date May 2021

The development is really great, i have had a wonderful 8 months so far and looking forward to the future here. The buildings are cleaned well and are very pleasant to look at. The styling is really well done and the amenities are everything that you need. I feel that i actually get my service charge worth out of the items on offer within the 5 buildings which is really great. The flats themselves are well equipped and have incredible appliances. We have had no issues so far and dont expect there to be any issues going forward. The after sale care has been really good and better than every other after sales service i have ever received.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Really like living in North Greenwich, the only downside is parking availability as this is very limited. The spots are relatively expensive to rent on a monthly basis. The only thing i would like to see is more parking spots at a cheaper rate than 200 pounds pm.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Baring the paint point above the only thing i wish i knew was the wind in this area. It would not of stopped me from buying here just the wind does get crazy sometimes (would style the outside furniture slightly differently)

What is the best feature of your home:

Love the building style and modern look inside! The amenities are amazing as well.

Amazing experience with room for improvement

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date May 2021

Design and facilities are pretty good, but some improvements in terms of guiding the new residents and visitors could be done. For example, it is hard to localise the facilities and even the rubbish cupboard. A map could be available in the website or/and provided by the concierge.

Building and property management could improve customer services and communications skills. Delivery system is quite confusing and orders get lost or delay in arriving very often. Floor heating is not strong, being the flat not warm at all in cold days and property management failed to provide solution, being even rude at times.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The overall quality and quantity of shops, restaurants, bars and open spaces is quite satisfactory and good quality. We only miss a bigger grocery store with good quality items a local productions market. The area would be favoured with cafes/restaurants/bakery in the Riverside area as well.

The public transport links work pretty well, being the access to other areas of the city facilitated. The buses, however, suffer with delays more usually than it should. A point to improve are the walkable connections with Greenwich Park and West Greenwich areas, at the moment prioritised by cars.

My street is pretty calm and clean. Nothing to complain.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

Loka energy as the only option for heating is too expensive for a service that doesn’t even provide good value.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Heating and lighting could be enhanced. Furnished flats could have a full body mirror. Layout of cupboard doesn’t maximise its potential use space.

Amazing river view living

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date May 2021

B5 is the best of Greenwich Peninsula – having lived in B1 and enduring sleepless nights, human traffic that felt like living on a main road, B5 is a blessing-it’s extremely nice and residents are friendly and welcoming.

Air conditioning would have made this place A+.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

This is an amazing place to live – it’s vibrant and packed with so much to do. It’s a joy to wake up to beautiful location that gives so much. It’s clean and appealing. Some issues with visitors and rubbish they leave behind but for most part it’s an amazing place to live. I feel truly blessed to have this.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

How amazing it would get – it’s overwhelming

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

Air conditioning as it gets very hot. Regular window cleaning. Views are too gorgeous to hide

Love being right by the Thames

Verified Resident
Verified Resident
Review Date May 2021

The design of the building, from its exterior to the interior, is beautiful, modern and elegant. Friends and family who come round often gasp in surprise to see how nice everything is. The facilities are cleverly located in different buildings.
I’ve also been impressed by the concierge and the excellent quality of property management.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

Really love being right next to the Thames, and being able to watch the sunset from the terraced gardens as the cable cars ascend is a magnificent feeling. Overall, it’s very comfortable and I’m very pleased to have moved in here. The one thing that could be improved is a better supermarket – currently there’s only one Tesco, but stock is not always in and the range isn’t great.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

It would’ve been useful to know where the recycling bins were – it took me a while to find them the first time.

If there is one thing you would change about your flat or property what would it be:

If there’s a way to get from building 5 to building 2 without getting wet when it rains, that’d be excellent.
